    I've downloaded the 2 different versions of Pokésav, but AVG and Adaware tell me that both of them have a Trojan in them.

    If it was just one program telling me this, I'd ignore it, but it's 2. Are there older versions of this Pokésav that I could use? Or someone with the same problem who could help me out?

    Lol @ your false positive. Run it through virustotal, and you'll see that it's fine.

    the trojan isn't anything to worry about if you downloaded it from projectpokemon.com

    Dave's either high again or just joking around.

    Probably the two.

    Quit using trash anti-virus protections. Download it from a trusted source and don't worry about it.

    Some AV programs will treat anything that can in any way affect another file as a virus/trojan, like a save editor or various other things.

    Use PokeGen as a fantastic alternative.

    It's more stable, won't set off your virus scanners, and is natively written in English, but supports all characters (Japanese and otherwise) used by the Pokemon games.

    http://projectpokemon.org/forums/showthrea...and-information

    It also has a developer who speaks English natively and welcomes feedback, input, and bug reporting.
